Transfer RNA, or tRNA, plays a vital role in the synthesis of proteins inside the cell by transcribing messenger RNA and attaching amino acids to form a chain. This process gradually builds up the long chains of amino ac... More »

The function of tRNA is to decode an mRNA sequence into a protein and transfer that protein to the ribosomes where DNA is replicated. The tRNA decides what amino acid is needed according to the codon from the mRNA molecu... More »

tRNA interprets the nucleotide sequence of mRNA to build the corressponding amino acid sequence. tRNA reads codons of mRNA to build proteins. tRNA does its job after the mRNA is made ready for translation. More »

Transcription RNA, or tRNA, carries amino acids to the messenger RNA, or mRNA, as it exits the cell nucleus and contributes them to the building of proteins. Each unit of tRNA carries a specific amino acid, and when the ... More » Science Biology Molecular Biology & DNA

Transfer RNA, or tRNA, is responsible for decoding another type of RNA, messenger RNA or mRNA, in order to carry out the process of protein synthesis. Different types of tRNA exist, each of which communicates with a spec... More »

A ribosome plays a vital role in protein synthesis, a process by which proteins are produced from individual amino acids. A ribosome is a cytoplasmic granule consisting of RNA and protein. Ribosomes are one of the requir... More »

Class resources from The City University of New York describe the transfer ribonucleic acid (tRNA) anticodon as the three-peptide sequence at the base of a transfer RNA molecule that determines where and how the transfer... More »
